Peat moss- good or bad?
There has been a discussion recently about the use of Mycelium added to the root system of plants. This inspired me to to do a lot more research on the soil micro system and what is taking place below the surface. I have a calcareous clay soil and have read that adding peat moss would help break up the clay and help with the pH. Well I have done this, maybe over done it. I have access to more peat moss than I could ever use in my life for the 3 acre lawn and gardens at home, so I even spread it on my pastures at the farm.
I have just read something that has alarmed me, see link below. Peat moss is anti microbial.
